WALK FOR WILDLIFE

INTERNATIONAL 10KM FUN-RUN-WALK EVENT

To celebrate the end of London's COVID lockdown, and share in that excitement with Free The Wild's global supporters, we're asking the community to get out and stretch their legs for the good of those who can't.

Across the world, wild animals continue to suffer in the confines of their glass, steel or concrete enclosures - some are lucky enough to enjoy the benefits of daily care and attention, stimulation and continual supplies of food and water, but many, many more are not.

Help us raise awareness for their plight. Walk, jog or run a reasonable 10KMs (at your own pace, on your own route - no matter where you are) to help us raise their profile and the funds necessary to put our plans for wild animal welfare into practice!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Wherever you are in the world, you can take part!

Competitors simply need to fill out the BLUE DONOR FORM below - making a small donation of £5 or equivalent. Once your donation is complete, your details will be added to our list of entrants (updated daily).

All participants should have access to some form of pedometer or mobile tracking app as we would like to list everyone's results in the days following the event's completion - don't worry, it's not a race, but we would like to keep track of how far everyone went!

If you don't already have one, here's a great place to start: https://www.strava.com/mobile

AFTER SIGN UP

Once you have signed up, keep a close eye on the Runner list below [click here to view]. There, you will find your unique RUNNER ID. Please share this with your friends and family as they will need it in order to support you and raise funds for the event. The list updates every 24 hours.

You will also receive an email within 24hrs containing your RUNNER ID - make sure to check the inbox associated with your donation!

The event starts at midnight on Sunday and ends at midnight on Monday, allowing for all competitors across the world to take part on the same day.

We will compile a list of all donations received on our entrants behalves - your supporters can donate to your run / walk using the ORANGE DONOR FORM below. We have put together three surprise Mystery boxes which we will send out to three lucky entrants*;

1) One Mystery Prize Box for the entrant who travelled the furthest distance on the day,

2) One Mystery Prize Box for the entrant who raised the most funds, and

3) One Mystery Prize Box for the most animals photographed along the way.

Once you have completed your run / walk, an upload form will be made available on this page, where entrants can upload screenshots or photos of the distance they travelled and any interesting snaps they took along the way. An animal checklist form will also be available to download on the day, so be sure to check back here to download it! Simply send this form in via email and we'll add you into the prize pool for the third Mystery Prize Box!

SUPPORT A RUNNER

If you are not taking part in the event, but would like to support someone who is, simply fill in the DonorBox form below, being sure to fill in the RUNNER ID field - you can find the entrant's Runner ID in the list of runners below the form (click here to view the list). Try using the search function to help you locate the runner you're looking to support!

There, please enter the full name and email address of the person you are supporting. This will help us (and the entrant) to keep track of how much they helped to raise for Free The Wild.

Please note: The Amount Raised shown below does not include the sign-up donation each runner makes, but rather the funds they help raise. In the Runner List below, each runner's total donations (including their own) are displayed.
